I hope Jenny and her family all continue to heal and get better -- sorry I missed this post early but I'll keep you all in my prayers now.

Hello ... Here is an update from Jenny's mom ...

Hi Everyone,

    Jenny's stay at the rehab center has now been extended to Janurary 31st.  She is making  good progress with her physical therapy.  
She was able with assistance to take a few steps with her right foot sliding it forward and then moving her left foot. She still needs to make more progress eating. She can eat most any kind of food but just doesn't seem to have too much of an appetite. Please pray for progress in this area.
    Sunday, Jenny went out for one hour on her first field trip to the Museum of History and Industry near the University. We all traveled in a wheel chair assessible van with a Recreational Therapist who accompanied us on the field trip. Jenny seemed to enjoy the trip.  It was a little cold but the sun was out which was great. Jenny can now say "Mom" and "Wow".  Jenny had a great weekend!
  

So, that is all I have for now.

Karissa is on her road to recovery .. and is doing well.

Again, thank you all for your continued prayers! God Bless ...

Well, I finally was able to go see Jenny for the first time since she has been awake.

It was an interesting visit.

She knew who I was right away and was very excited to see me.
She asked how I was and about Daniel(my son) in very few words.
She struggles to get words out and has trouble with certain sounds.  

I can tell Jenny is the same Jenny. Her personality is still very much the same.

Communicating is difficult because she struggles to get words and sounds out.
Much of everything is two to three words. She was able to tell me very clearly she loved me.

She saw a picture of Daniel and was excited, she would like to see him, so we will arrange that.

While visiting a commercial came on the TV for brownies and she became very excited. She ooooo'd and ahhhhh'd about it.
So, I will have Daniel help make a batch of brownies before we go for our next visit.

She tried to tell her Cheryl ( her mom ) something but Cheryl was not picking up. Jenny got up, walked a slow and limping walk
to her room and came back with a camera. Jenny wanted to take a picture with me.
She is still the very same sweet girl she always was.

She can read short sentences and understand most of them.

She can write very little, and has to use her left hand now as her right arm and hand are partially paralyzed from the brain damage.
However, therapy seems to think with hard work she can get more use of her arm and hand.

Anyway, her main issue now seems to be the fact that she doesn’t understand certain things or have the comprehensive abilities.
I think the best way I can describe how she is, is this. It was like she is an adult and toddler at the same time.
I was very odd to see what she can and cannot do. Encouraging and depressing at the same time.
She must be very frustrated .. ..

Well, that is all I have for now.
And thank you for continued prayers.

Oh, Karissa is doing VERY well. She is enrolled in school and is on the right path in life.

Sheri
